Axon 7

The Axon 7 is a strong contender for the best smartphone of 2016.

ZTE aims to take 2016 by storm with the release of the Axon 7. This smartphone packs an impressive amount of high end features at an affordable price. At $450, this is a tempting offer that can’t be ignored. ZTE outdid themselves with this new release. It boasts a powerful camera, 2K display, extra storage options & a sexy uni-body metal case. It’s apparent that ZTE listened to customer complaints about the original Axon & went to great lengths to make us happy. Without a doubt the Axon 7 is going to be one of the top releases of 2016.

ZTE Makes Impressive Comeback With Axon 7

When you pick up ZTE’s Axon 7, you instantly get deja vu. That’s because ZTE artfully blended familiar specs from Apple & HTC. With the seductive feel of the iPhone 6S & the same frontward facing speakers of the HTC One series, you will immediately feel comfortable with this phone.

The curved edges & beautiful 5.5 inch display are the work of BMW’s Designworks. This world renown design firm is responsible for creating innovative additions to everything ranging from Thermaltake computing accessories to US Olympic team bobsleds, as well as making sophisticated upgrades to BMW’s X series cars. This is their first foray into smartphone design, but they did such a good job you would never guess.

The specs of the Axon 7 are extremely enticing. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor at 2.2GHz & has 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage. If that wasn’t enough, you can also add an additional 128GB by inserting a microSD card. The 5.5 inch screen comes to life with quad-HD (2,560 x 1,440 pixel) resolution. ZTE also outdid the original Axon by upgrading to AMOLED instead of LCD.

Our favorite features of the Axon 7 are hands down its camera & speakers. This camera will blow you away with the raw power of 20 megapixels. It also features optical image stabilization & F/1.8 lens to improve low light performance. You can also take selfies with its 8 megapixel front camera. This marvelous camera can also shoot 4K video at 30FPS, as well as 240FPS slow motion at a staggering 720p. The speakers are a work of art, supporting 24-bit/96kHz audio. These speakers have managed to outdo the critically acclaimed Boomsound speakers offered by HTC. The best part is since ZTE partnered with Dolby Atmos headphone support, you get new ways to hear audio & virtual surround sound.

It will be exciting to see how this VR system stacks up against the competition.

Another interesting twist is the Axon 7’s VR capabilities. ZTE announced that they will be releasing the ZTE VR headset alongside the Axon 7. This headset is extremely similar to the Gear VR. All you have to do is slide your smartphone into place & enjoy its 9 axis gyroscope that enhances motion tracking. It will also support Android’s Daydream VR, so you get nothing but cutting edge VR.

ZTE held nothing back with this surprisingly affordable flagship phone. With its powerful features the Axon 7 is something that anyone can get excited about. This highly anticipated release is paving the way for ZTE to make a stronger presence in new markets. For too long they have been ignored, but this impressive release should change that.
